KENNEDY SPACE CENTER, FLA. - A crawler-transporter carrying Mobile Launcher Platform (MLP) number 3, with a set of twin solid rocket boosters bolted atop, crawls to the intersection in the crawlerway in support of the second engineering analysis vibration test on the crawler and MLP. From this perspective, the Launch Control Center (left) and the 525-foot-tall Vehicle Assembly Building (right) in the background appear dwarfed by the 184-foot-tall boosters. The crawler is moving at various speeds up to 1 mph in an effort to achieve vibration data gathering goals as it leaves the VAB, travels toward Launch Pad 39A and then returns. The boosters are braced at the top for stability. The primary purpose of these rollout tests is to gather data to develop future maintenance requirements on the transport equipment and the flight hardware. Various parts of the MLP and crawler transporter have been instrumented with vibration data collection equipment.
